Recruit's Mom Walks off on Signing Day When Son Commits To Florida

Andrew Chatfield

Wearing an Alabama sweatshirt and Tennessee hat, she got up from her seat next to her son and left the ceremony just as her son announced his decision.

He wrote: "Throughout this entire recruiting process I never been as stressed as I am now".

"I don't know exactly why she walked out". And if you think you were surprised, check out how surprised mom was.

That shows how tough the final call was for Copeland and perhaps gives some insight into the pressure he was dealing with in reaching that moment.

What Copeland's mother did was selfish and she should take a long, hard look in the mirror and realize that she just hurt her son on live television. On National Signing Day 2018, the Pensacola, FL native was making his decision on where he will play college football. "I can't go with my mom, I want to go with my heart", he said.

Copeland's final official visit was to Florida, which is need of playmakers on the outside.

Though she and his coach reportedly encouraged the Escambia High, Fla. senior to commit to the Crimson Tide, he instead went with Florida and his mom proceeded to walk off the set. "He's a complete player and a great playmaker with the ball in his hands".
